The McGraw-Hill Building was a 16-story, 190-foot-tall (58 m) landmark building in the Near North Side community area of Chicago, Illinois. The facade and its architectural sculpture by Chicago-born artist Gwen Lux was landmarked by the city prior to demolition, then taken down and reinstalled in 2000 on the new Conrad Chicago Hotel building.[1] Its facade was designated a Chicago Landmark on February 7, 1997.[2] The building was demolished in 1998.[3] The Conrad Chicago Hotel was a reconstruction of the McGraw-Hill Building.[3][4]
